Karen Huger Sets The Record Straight About Her Husband Ray's Alleged Tax Problems!

If you recall, The Washington Post reported back in July that Karen Huger's husband Ray Huger owed millions of dollars in back-due federal taxes. However, the Real Housewives of Potomac assures everyone that she and Ray are "great." Karen confirmed that The Post‘s reports were “true to an extent.”

“The good news is we’re great,” she told PEOPLE. “Ray came out on a good side. I can’t tell you everything, but I’m very proud of him. He’s a great businessman.”

Karen admitted “the budget came into play,” she said when she was asked if she had to make financial changes. “Of course, if you’re a good wife, you’ll put yourself on a good budget,” she joked.

Despite the scandal, the Bravo reality star said the story made her, Ray, and children Brandon and Rayvin an even stronger unit.

“Material things come and go, but if you have the love of your family — your children, your mom, your dad, your brother, your sister — we pulled through and we’re better for it,” she said. “I think it’ll be a shining example of anyone facing adversity. Bad things happen to good people. Once the story unfolds you’ll see that Ray didn’t deserve that. But it can happen to anybody.”

“Ray and I are blessed,” she added. “We have a 21 year marriage. Adversities and challenges are going to come. Ray and I don’t come from money, we made money. So again, you can have money one day, you may lose it, but you can have it again. It made us stronger. It bonded us in a way that we had to find each other again, and that’s keeping it real. I love him.”

As previously reported, The Washington Post, citing public records, had reported that Ray owes nearly $1.5 million in back-due federal taxes, and his software company owes more than $3 million.

That report fuels much of the drama in the upcoming third season with many of the women questioning if that’s the reason Karen and Ray sold their Potomac mansion for $1.685 million (rather than the $2.5 million it was listed as) to move to a cheaper property in Great Falls at the end of last season.

Gizelle Bryant, who appears to be leading the charge in uncovering the truth about Karen’s finances this season, reveals her reasons why she wanted to get to the bottom of the situation.

“She never really gave us a straight answer,” Bryant said. “She doesn’t realize if you don’t tell us your business, we’re going to be in your business.”

“Karen and I love to love each other but we do it in a different way,” she added. “We do have our battles, we do have our issues, but at the end of it we do apologize when someone’s wrong, and Karen always forgives me.”
